Cost-Effectiveness of Long-Term Outpatient Buprenorphine-Naloxone Treatment for Opioid Dependence in Primary Care

by Dr. Rich on January 8, 2012

CONCLUSIONS  Office-based bup/nx for clinically stable patients may be a cost-effective alternative to no treatment at a threshold of $100,000/QALY
depending on assumptions about quality-of-life weights. Additional research about quality-of-life benefits and broader health
system and societal cost savings of bup/nx therapy is needed.
